Dano, I feel loved when Killy gets her ire up and focused on my hide.

Killy, Yup... I be settled in with dry socks, in an insulated office, but one I had to build myself when I started working here. The weld shop is cold and pure misery so I make several sojourns to the floor daily to keep humble.

My nails, however, are not, nor ever will be nice, done or any of that fuoh-fouh stuff. Li'l grit under the nails balances the dry socks.

I had to smile reading your line about "simple camp" and think'n of all the drivel I drag to B'more... but it serves well to be prepared, eh?

 :)  Peace. Thanks for the sharing the trail with us, gal.

btw, did Clark start that fire with his flint/steel?
The words "Child" and "terminal illness" should never share the same sentence! Those who care-do, others question!

I can't imagine that he didn't - unless he forgot to bring it - and since he was bringing the news of the burn ban lifting, I can't imagine he would forget his flint and steel. Although he does have his mother on his mind, I'm sure. the best to all three of you, Killie; thanks for the yarn spinning, the pics, and watching out for the invisibles, and may Clark's Mom go peacfully, when her time comes.

Thanks for taking us along. I enjoy the honest, heartfelt way you tell a story. I think we have all shared some of those feelings in our own special places.

Long, long afterward, in an oak I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end, I found again in the heart of a friend.

I don't get here as often as I should or can anymore but do check in now and again. I stumbled upon this thread and all I can say is "Wow". Great writing Killy ! As in most years I had the best intention of getting out in the deer woods with my bow(s) but as is often the case, life gets in the way of living. By the time M/loader season here in IN came around I was not quite as busy earning a living and was able to take a young buck with my .54 flintlock.Once you have one safely in the freezer you can spend more time out just wandering and enjoying it all. Still have till this next Sunday for archery season here so hope to make one trip out with the bow.
 BTW, I think I have the same style of wool pants you all were discussing. Bought mine from Sportsmen's Guide several yrs ago. I think mine were German or Swiss, can't remember. Love 'em ! I think mine have a sort of vinyl lining in the legs. How about your's ? I have to wear suspenders with mine. Time I load them up and make them heavy, a belt just won't suffice. (no butt syndrome).
 Maybe I did not get to bow hunt this year much if any but your narrative made me feel like in some sort or fashion that I did make it out. Thanks Killy. Tim
